Changing your password

posted Jun 2, 2011, 10:02 PM by Kyle Dawson


Here's how to change your password:

  1. Sign in to WebMadeEasy Email.
  2. Click the gear icon at the top of any Email page, then Mail settings, and open the Accounts and Import tab.
  3. In the 'Change account settings' section, click Change password.
  4. In the new window, enter your current password and your new password.

Make sure you create a unique password to help keep someone from breaking in to your account. Here are a few tips for creating your password, and keeping it safe:

  • Your password should be easy for you to remember without being obvious for someone else to guess.
  • Don't choose a dictionary word as your password.
  • Include a variety of characters, such as punctuation marks, numbers, and mix capital and lowercase letters.
  • Never tell anyone your password.
  • Never write down your password. Even if you don't think that somebody would know that it was your WebMadeEasy  password if they saw it, think of a way to remember it so that you don't have to write it down.
  • Periodically change your password.

If your password isn't working, you'll need to go through our password recovery process. Google Apps users, please contact your organization's IT admin for help with password recovery.
